Odyssey Charter School
14 St. John Circle, Newnan, GA 30265 -- (770)251-6111


Board Members

The Governing Board of Directors has the complete responsibility of carrying out the terms of our charter contract and for managing the school as provided in our charter and in a manner consistent with the Constitution of the United States.

The Governing Board of Directors consists of nine voting members, each serving a three year term. In addition to the nine voting members, the school Principal serves as an ex officio (non-voting) board member. In each school year, three members reach the end of their terms and six members remain. This provides a continuity of governance and experience while also allowing for new membership each year.

Elections for the open positions are held each fall in accordance with the election process outlined in the bylaws. The offices of President, Vice-President, Treasurer and Secretary are elected annually by the Board.

Andrew Kee


Andy has been an elected member of our Board since 2014. His two children, Asuka and Cabot, and his wife, Jerrie, are all proud Odyssey Tigers. Andy is the Senior Video Engineer for Wide Open West, the 9th largest cable company in the US. He is an amateur radio operator and has been involved with the Coweta County Amateur Radio Emergency Service, the American Red Cross, the National Weather Service, C.E.R.T. as well as search and rescue operations. He and his family have a small farm where Asuka and Cabot raise chickens for 4-H. Andy passionately believes that our school is capable of an educational experience that is second to none for the students that we serve. He believes a quality education starts at home and that Odyssey promotes that belief by encouraging continuous parental involvement on and off of school grounds in a way that is not possible in the traditional public school systems. He feels our teachers and supporting staff are some of the most dedicated professionals that he has met and he is proud to serve them, our students and our school.
